The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) allocated Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds to the State of Georgia to address “unmet needs” and "mitigation" in the areas damaged by one of several major disasters. The funding has been made available through the Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) program, which focuses on covering “…necessary expenses for activities…related to disaster relief, long-term recovery, restoration of infrastructure and housing, and economic revitalization in the most impacted and distressed areas…”.
This funding is now available to assist communities, some of which were completely devastated and remain uninhabitable a year after the fact. Counties that received public and individual assistance are eligible to receive these funds.
